I thought people were interested in Jax because his situation was a bit of an oddity. I didn't think he profiled to be much more than a swing man at best.
I just remember he didn't have great strikeout numbers despite coming from a rather weak conference. What is it about this guy everyone likes?
I thought the scouting reports had him as a hard thrower 93-95 with good control (low # of walks).Work ethic\makeup was strong and based on talent potential of that class he would have been a second round talent if he didn't have the military commitment.Twins took him in the third round I guess thinking he was a steal of sorts but the Military commitment did bite them as he lost development time.
I still like him but something more needs to click for him to be a starter.He gives up a fair number of hits and isn't missing a ton of bats at the lower levels.I am guessing that in time those number will look better but if they don't then he still has a good two pitch mix and throws hard enough to be a good reliever.Guy works hard and has the physical tools so I am not betting against him.
